What model Wrangler/year are you refering to? If your Wrangler does add miles when towed it's the first one I ever heard of. Do you tow with the ignition powered or key in ithe Accessory position? 2010 and later Wranglers are towed with ignition off which will leave the odometer inert.

If the key is off I guarantee the mileage will not increase when towed. I have towed a variety of Hondas, Suzuki's, and Jeeps and never had the mileage increase on the Odometer when towed. I have towed vehicles for over 100,000 miles with zero miles registering on the odometer.
Jeeps, specifically Wranglers, made before 1997 had a mechanical odometer so unless you pull the cable from the transmission, the would accumulate miles when towed.

I agree about the tire issue. We had about 25K miles on the tires on our little Honda when we started our cross-country trip last year. about half way on the trip we had to get a set of tires. Better save than sorry. The odometer does not record all this towing either.

Yea, but how many miles did the Jeep actually travel to get those 38000 miles? Even though the odometer does not add miles, the tires actually have many more miles than the engine/transmission.
